Supramolecular chemistry refers to the study of supramolecular assemblies. Traditional chemistry generally
focuses on the covalent bonding but supramolecular chemistry monitored by weak interactions of
noncovalent bonds; exist extensively in numerous vital biological processes. The origin of supramolecular
chemistry was from the living biological systems to some extent. This critical review highlights recent
advances in supramolecular chemistry and its application.
Key words: Supramolecular chemistry, noncovalent bonds, host, guest, recognition, complexation.
